It’s not only their bodies are nude – their brain cells are also nude stripped.
Thank you Cher

People with miswired brains used to be the Minority. I'm afraid they have become the Majority!
An overweght Lab is illigal, but a starved Irish Wolfhound would be Okay??

No clothes but Slim required. What possible difference does it make if this woman has a guide dog that is 200lbs (okay exaggeration there) the dog is her lifeline. People do manage to get themselves worked up about things that could be so easily ignored.

Oh for God's sake!! Can't these DUMMIES see that Laura is her lifeline? I'm totally disgusted!! Can anyone start a petition? I know they have their lawyer but maybe a petition would also help. Thnx Cher!!

It's a service dog ~ not a pet (legally) ~ for heaven's sake! The dog can go into markets, theatres, on buses...but not for a walk around the neighborhood because of a private community weight limit?

I thought it illegal to even QUESTION the reasons for a service dog!

This lady needs to make a LOT of NOISE about these doofuses!

Where's she living? DRAMALAND?

She could do better monetarily....I'd bring the condo association begging for forgiveness.

People do lie about service dogs. But not all people, and clearly not this person. It would probably help both people who need service dogs and places where they live and work if there were a simple, consistent, indisputable way to certify the service animal. This is Florida so likely the state won't do it; Florida state government will only do things that bring money to Rick Scott. There's an opportunity for an entrepreneur (or entrepreneuse) here.. Meantime, I agree with Allan. Take the condo association for everything they've got. Bullies.

Noted, tweeted. Ya know, I don't say things like this often and the entire situation deserves a lot of attention regarding legal matters, especially concerning a woman with disabilities, etc. etc. I'm tired right now and all I can really think to say is.........."IDIOTS!!"

What a selfish group of people. What difference does it make what size a dog is anyway? It has nothing to dow with behavior and the woman needs the dog. I have read about how people are pretending their dogs are service dogs but it seems that they would be able to tell she is not faking by watching her if they see her enough. What idiots. They outght to be ashamed of themselves

I'd rather lives with any dog rather than any of those people.

This situation is ABSURD ! Everyone knows you cannot defame service dogs. There must be more to this conflict . Surely.

I m with you Sharon and Laura and their family. What should we do to those brain damaged people? How about send them to orbit around the Earth for few days?
Thanks Cher

This has got to be one of the most bizarre things that I have ever heard from a Condominium Association. Some of them are petty tin pot dictators enforcing some rather inane policies. I imagine that some don't have anything more important in their lives to accomplish besides making life difficult for those requiring service dogs.
